If you are ever looking for something easy to take to a friend’s house or have people coming over look no further! This recipe for baked feta with chilli, oregano and smoked paprika is an easy way to prepare a great entrée or finger food dish that is absolutely moreish!
Baked feta is a traditional Greek way of preparing feta, and through adding simple ingredients to the salty cheese it simply enhances the dish. To make baked feta you don’t have to be fancy and buy the cheese over the counter at the deli. You can simply use the one from the cheese counter from your local store. Next all you do is simply place the cheese in a small baking dish and top with olive oil, chilli flakes, oregano and the smoked paprika. Then simply cover the dish with some aluminium foil and place in a pre-heated oven.
While the feta bakes, simply prepare your plate with either some crackers, fresh bread or bread crisps. I’m a huge fan of kalamata olives, so if you want to jazz up the plate a bit Brooke tends to put a small bowl to accompany the cheese.
After about 10 – 15 minutes the cheese should be warmed through and ready to serve.
